Often referred to as the absolute worst weapon in Fortnite, it’s always a massive question mark as to why Epic keep bringing the crossbow back. For Season 5 of Chapter 2, we have Cupid’s Crossbow, which is, you guessed it, not very good either.

Working similarly to crossbows in the past, Cupid’s Crossbow allows players to take things back to basics, but it’s a pretty hard call to use this projectile-based weapon against all the other snipers in the game. Honestly, you’d probably be better off using a pistol.

Here’s what you should know about Cupid’s Crossbow in Fortnite Season 5.

As you can see, due it doing just 68 damage, Cupid’s Crossbow isn’t exactly the best option in Fortnite for most engagements, especially as it does pretty much no damage to builds. That 68 damage to players is even more difficult to justify owing to just how how difficult it is to land shots with it as it doesn’t really work like most other weapons in the game.

However, it does have infinite ammo, so that’s something to consider if you want an ultimate backup kind of weapon if you’re low on ammo. You can fire five bolts before you need to reload, which only takes two and a half seconds.

All in all, if you want some tips on how to use Cupid’s Crossbow, here’s probably the best one we can give: drop it as soon as you find something else.

Cupid’s Crossbow can be found pretty much everywhere, which includes floor loot, chests, and anywhere you can typically find loot. Despite being of a higher rarity, it’s very easy to find due to it only being available for a temporary time as part of the Hearts Wild event.

Hearts Wild is this year’s Valentine’s event in Fortnite and sees players trying to help out Fishstick with a hot date alongside other challenges, as well as there being a load of new and returning cosmetics in the Item Shop.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
